Crime Report: Peeping Tom at Ballston Common Mall

Police are on the lookout for a man seen peeking under a women’s bathroom stall at Ballston Common Mall.

The incident happened just before 6:00 p.m. on Monday. The crime and the suspect description is strikingly similar to that of another peeping tom incident at the Clarendon Barnes and Noble bookstore on May 24.

From this week’s Arlington County crime report:

He had shaggy brown hair and was wearing a brown t-shirt and khaki pants.
